Tatton Cinema development
Mixed use development at the heart of Gatley
When the former art deco Tatton Cinema closed its doors in 2001, it was a loss to the community. After its partial demolition, only the art deco façade remained in situ, and this was how it stayed for years to come.
Brand new development
Fast forward to 2021, where a stylish new mixed-use development can now be found occupying the site. The scheme was built by Rowlinson for local housing provider, Stockport Homes.
The majority of the new self-contained homes are in support of the drive to make more housing available for older people and are available to rent to those aged over 55.
The apartments include features such as accessible bathrooms, door entry systems and scooter stores.
Seven homes are located above the retail units. A further 26 two-bedroom apartments along with parking, are found to the rear.
In line with local views, retaining the art deco frontage was a key element of the scheme.
Keeping the façade ensures that the heritage of the building lives on whilst leaving the dereliction far behind.
The former eyesore has now become a central part of the community once more.
David Chilton, managing director of Rowlinson said: “This development was a long time coming for the local people but we’re so pleased with the end result. It’s great to see the area back in proper use once again.”
The scheme was constructed by Rowlinson on behalf of Stockport Homes, with design by Nicol Thomas architects.
